The great mystery is nothing other than ourselves.
And it is a mystery, not because it is unknowable to us but it is unknowable to our minds.
The dualistic, object/subject, descriptive nature of thinking and analysis blinds us to the obvious and hurls us into a conceptual world.
That is, a dream world.
We really should consider whether or not all this accumulation of discursive knowledge has actually brought us what we are seeking.
Clearly, if that held the key to happiness and peace, we would have realized it by now. But we have not.
In fact, it has brought us to the brink of mass extinction.
Time for a fresh approach, wouldn’t you agree?
